StreetPass NYC events aren't just a great place to get some StreetPasses to finish puzzles or defeat those pesky Find Mii enemies (although they are fantastic for that) they're also a great place to play games with fellow Nintendo fans. And this Sunday, January 13, the group will be holding three tournaments at their booth (B4) at Apex Tournament Series at the Rutgers Student Center in New Brunswick NJ.
"We are super excited to be partnering and working with the Apex Tournament Series organizers who have been extremely gracious to us" says Jordan White, Founder and Event Organizer of StreetPass NYC. "The tournament organizers recognized our efforts in both charity and exposure as a voice to Nintendo gamers not only in the New York Metro Area but for Nintendo gamers around the world. We are honored to show the rest to the gaming public that Nintendo fans are just as competitive and vocal as the fighting game community and we can add our own variety and style of competitive gaming outside of VS one-on-one fighting!"
There will be Kid Icarus: Uprising and Mario Kart 7 tournaments on the 3DS and a Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 tourney on the Wii U. Trophies and prizes will be awarded to the winners, and Kid Icarus: Uprising Series One Card Booster Packs will also be given away to top ranking players. And after the tournaments are through, there will be free play on the Wii U, so you can enjoy games like Nintendo Land, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, New Super Mario Bros. U, WarioWare Smooth Moves, Super Smash Bros. and more!
Sign-ups for the Kid Icarus Uprising and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 tournaments start at 10:00 am, so be there bright and early! For a full schedule of the day's events as well as more information about Apex Tournament, visit their website.
